Lightning Bug have dropped a new single off of their forthcoming release, A Color of the Sky. “”Song of the Bell” is a song about hope, but it’s also about understanding that uncertainty is an inextricable part of being alive. This was the last song to be written—we’d already recorded the bulk of the record,” explains Kang. “We were in the first leg of quarantine and I felt like our days had been abruptly hollowed out. I was thinking about emptiness and reading the Tao Te Ching, this very enlightened text, ‘to be empty is to be full, twist to be straight,’ etc. So I was thinking about that concept, how one can ‘empty’ oneself to be full, and where is that line, between emptying yourself and losing yourself? I thought about how when something is empty, you sort of have two choices: you can see it for what it used to hold and no longer does (i.e. a ‘shell’), or you can look for its potential to hold new things and possibilities (i.e. a ‘vessel’).”
